One song per reply. Before I start to load up my Bose hard drive, hit me with the song that is a MUST HEAR, and I will extract a list from LimeWire and give it a run.
I'm starting to max out on my own personal list, and I have almost a terabyte of music on my computer.

I don't know about the caddy specifically but here are a few driving songs I like.

Battle without Honor or Humanity (Kill Bill theme)- Tomoyasu Hotei
In the Air Tonight - Phil Collins
Ramble On - Led Leppelin
Real Gone - Sheryl Crow
Suicide Blonde - INXS
You - Candlebox

That should keep you downloading for a few minutes. What do you have on your list?

Led Zeppelin "Rock and Roll"

...and I loved this song even before Cadillac started using it in their commercials. I wish they'd put the song in just one ad for the V, it would be more appropriate than for the base CTS. :) I've even got the vinyl for Led Zep IV somewhere in my basement...

Folks -


Golden Earring:
Radar Love

Gary hit it, right here. This unofficial poll has been around a LOT longer than web-based forums have. Usenet driving groups, such as rec.autos.driving of long, long past, have had threads about the perfect "driving song" for years and years.

Radar Love always wins. Hands down. It's an audio speeding ticket, waiting to happen.

Cross Canadian Ragweed - Highway 377 its about a Cadillac!Noice! (says haysoos a little too often) but a real good caddy song.


Chris Rea "TEXAS"Excellent choice. Love the warm bubbly bass near the end. Built for the Bose rear deck sub. Keeper. I like this obscure stuff with a real good bass rumble. Thanks.


Run to the Hills, Iron Maiden...drum cadence will have you going 100 plus in no time!Ahh yes, I'm adding Run to the hills as we speak to join up with The Trooper and Flight of Icarus. Good call, a permanent hard drive must. :thumbsup:

"Back In The Saddle"- Aerosmith (studio cut off the 1976 ROCKS album).

From the tense, sounds-of-doom intro to the rocking ending, this song kicks serious butt; and is a fitting sound for the CTS-V from the moment you start the engine, until you are at-speed in the interstate and above.

"Nobody's Fault" off the same album is another good number to listen to 'at-speed'.

At least nobody's popped up yet with "It's A Small World".

I don't know why I forgot Led Zepps "Stairway To Heaven" almost always voted as the all time favorite song of all time.

Doesn't anybody else like that for jamming?

Yeah, the Maiden songs will definitely get you going faster than you should. Also Freewheel Burning and Rapid Fire by Priest, Live Wire by Motley Crue and Detroit Rock City by Kiss.Now for a 180, Speed by Eightball and MJG,BOB by Outkast and Notorious Thugs by Biggie with Bone Thugs!

"Undead" by Hollywood Undead. If just for the Cadillac lines.

+1 on Five Finger as well! Ivan was the man until his voice started to die.

I know we only get one but honorable mention to "No Easy Way Out" by Robert Tepper from "Rocky IV as well
